Probably no other model has such a lasting and sensational impact on the history of Ferrari and the popularity of the Scuderia as the 250 GT SWB does. More than 40 years later, this model is still hard to be foreshadowed, thanks to its graceful contour, flowing line management, and harmonious proportionality. Indeed it belongs to the most desired of all vintage cars.
What with its unique quality, this legendary Berlinetta mediates superbly between being a roadworthy car and an excellent racing car. In actuality, the Berlinetta set a historic record in terms of the number of victories clinched by a single model during its ten years of active participation in car racing.
CMC has dedicated itself to reproducing the luxury (Lusso) edition of the 250 GT SWB – based on a street-version built in 1961. The all-metal model is composed of 1.141 parts and it is completely hand-assembled. Every detail of the body, as designed by Sergio Pininfarina, became transferred exactly and presented in a miniature form that is true to the original. Named after its builder, the Colombo-twelvecylinder-V-engine is a feast for the eyes as well. Look at it and you could hear the revving and roaring sound of a powerful twelve-cylinder. Now if you wish, you can fantasize jumping into the model’s bucket seat and waiting for the command, ”Gentlemen, start your engines!“
